The Suicide Squad might just be the most unpredictable blockbuster of the summer. As the (sort of) new line up of supervillains take on another mission on pain of death, expect a high body count, an extremely offbeat ensemble and a well-earned R-rating.
Guardians of the Galaxy’s James Gunn directs, bringing his unique blend of humour to another ragtag comic-book collective. But if you thought a talking raccoon and sentient tree were weird, wait until you get a load of this line-up.
In the new issue, Total Film gets the lowdown from Gunn and his expansive cast, including Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, John Cena and Peter Capaldi. And, in order to fit the entire Squad on the cover, this month there’s a super-size foldout cover showcasing the whole gang.
